ZEALAND BY MOTORCYCLE
($19.95 plus $5.00 S/H) ISBN 0-935151-22-2
This 120-page book is targeted for the motorcyclist wanting to ride
a motorcycle in one of the most enjoyable motorcycling countries in the
world, New Zealand. With photographs, illustrations and hundreds of tips,
NEW ZEALAND BY MOTORCYCLE addresses topics like whether to sign up for
an organized tour or independently travel on a rental motorcycle; where
the best roads are; what to take with you; how to secure a motorcycle
for your adventure (rent, purchase, ship or?); accommodations and food
and paperwork requirements. New Zealand is one of the most "motorcycle
friendly" countries in the world. Each year motorcyclists from around
the world travel to New Zealand to experience some of the globe's best
Frazier has motorcycled through New Zealand four times and says: "NEW
ZEALAND BY MOTORCYCLE is a collection of answers to questions often asked
by motorcyclists. 'Will I need a Carnet de Passage to ship in my motorcycle?
How much do things cost? What should I take with me? Where can I find
a reasonably priced tour or rental motorcycle? What about buying a motorcycle?
Should I plan on camping or hotels? How can I connect with other motorcyclists?
What are the driving requirements?' I have been lucky enough to experience
New Zealand from the northernmost tip at mystical Cape Reinga to Bluff
at the southern end.
Twice I called my adventures "In Search of the Kiwi" but have
yet to see one. However, I have seen some of the most spectacular scenery
in the world, from jungles to the Southern Alps, and all in an area about
the size of Colorado. If the motorcyclist has a limited number of options
for motorcycle adventure on the globe, New Zealand by motorcycle should
be close to the top of the list."
AND NEW ZEALAND BY MOTORCYCLE
($24.95 plus $5.00 S/H) video
A 60-minute documentary about motorcycling in Australia and New Zealand.
Filmed from atop motorcycles, this video, MOTORCYCLING DOWN UNDER - NEW
ZEALAND AND AUSTRALIA, was produced to give the viewer a motorcycling
video and audio experience of "OZ" and New Zealand. From Fraser
Island to the Australian outback, Australia offers a wide variety of riding
adventure for the motorcyclist. Tasmanian devils, bull dust and left side
of the road riding are all reflected in this video adventure of Australia.
In New Zealand the viewer is treated to adventures ranging from a ride
on 90-Mile Beach, the jungles of the North Island and the Southern Alps
of the South Island.
says of this film: "When we produced this film we tried to capture
the best of motorcycling in both New Zealand and Australia. We also tried
to answer questions about riding styles, road conditions, food, entry
requirements and what a motorcyclist can expect traveling through these
two countries. For me, one of the biggest surprises was having a kangaroo
come over my handlebars at about 60 miles per hour. I snuffed him. He
almost snuffed me.
It took me a while to get used to the slang of the two countries and
several times I forgot I was supposed to ride in the left side lane instead
of the right. MOTORCYCLING DOWN UNDER - NEW ZEALAND AND AUSTRALIA gives
the viewer a very good idea of what to expect if they are lucky enough
to motorcycle 'Down Under.'"
